Se prendre

A performance in a flat, where two acrobats explore what connects us.


The term ‘intimacy’ has rarely been so accurate: in this real flat, Claudel Doucet and Cooper Lee Smith are waiting to unleash their energy. Only about a dozen spectators make up the limited audience for Se prendre; the acrobatics are performed at close range and move through each room, from the lounge to the bathroom. Throughout this journey, the two acrobats let their movements and actions convey our intimate relationships, the complexity of our affections and loneliness, and the understanding of our minds and bodies.
